If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” - Winston Churchill

Outfitting weapons for a squad.
Ok,lets say our patriot squad for my area of operations is six men and at present would involve urban close quarter battle and suburban med range battle.I must admit I have paid very little attention to the desert warriors and what they are packin these day's.I have read some are complaning about 5.56 lacking power at long range.Hence development of 6.8 round and specialty weapons ie modular multi cal etc.apparently they are breaking out the m-21's as well.What I am getting at is like a squad during Nam days,dont know specifics but at times appearred they squad auto,sometimes one or two bloopers,sometimes one or two shotguns.Obviously our little squad would not have auto weapons or grenade launchers,at least untill contact was made.Are shotguns viable close quarter weapon with o or oo ? What would be realistic ammo load,we want troopers to have enough yet be light enough to be nimble?For 3% or snipers we would have opportuanites for very long range sniping as well,308,06 or other long range probally bolt action.However I probally dont see this as regular part of squad.Will stop here to get caught up on comments.
